Golden Oak Homes at Walt Disney World Resort

Golden Oak at Walt Disney World Resort is a luxury residential resort community within the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida. It was designed by Walt Disney Imagineering and will be owned and operated by a newly formed Disney subsidiary, Golden Oak Realty. The development will be located southeast of the Magic Kingdom and Bay Lake. The area was named to pay homage to Walt Disney's Golden Oak Ranch in California.

One of the first community members will be a grandfather who has been visiting the theme parks with his extended family for years. His home is amazing. It includes a bedroom and play area for his seven grandchildren filled with special touches.

Golden Oak celebrates the timelessness of Old World and Old Florida architecture while being attuned to contemporary resort living. Expressing this enduring statement of design will be four lovely neighborhoods, with homes starting at $1.4 million.


Once existing only in dreams, this magnificent resort community can now be your family's destiny. Golden Oak offers first-ever whole ownership of custom single-family homes at Walt Disney World® Resort—a glorious place to share time together, where the recognizable whistle of the Walt Disney World® Railroad can be heard from the Magic Kingdom® Park.


The story of Golden Oak begins in true once-upon-a time fashion. As a youth in Missouri, Walt Disney would lie beneath the spreading branches of his "dreaming tree" and let his imagination run free. It was here that Walt's talents for storytelling and fantasy began to take shape into some of the world's most beloved characters.

Years later, a scenic ranch in California's Placerita Canyon proved an equally inspiring location for filmingsegments of The Mickey Mouse Club TV show. Walt Disney Productions purchased portions of the property in 1959 and, over the years, acquired more than 900 acres to reserve its quiet vistas for TV and movie productions and protect its harmony with nature. In fact, Walt and his family spent time relaxing and playing on the ranch.

The name of this ranch? Golden Oak, in honor of a storied tree there, under which some say gold nuggets had been found in 1842. From these illustrious origins, the legacy continues with Golden Oak at Walt Disney World® Resort.
